What is KIPP Texas' Application Process?

Applications: Applying to KIPP Texas is easy and takes just a few minutes! If you’re interested in enrolling your student in a KIPP Texas Public School for the 2024-25 school year, please visit  our website to complete a student application. Applications are accepted all year. However, to participate in the student lottery, applications are due by February 26, 2024.


The lottery will be held on March 4, 2024 to determine which students will be offered available seats at each KIPP Texas school. We will extend admission offers starting on March 6, and will continue to extend offers as new openings come available.


Registration: If your student is entering kindergarten through 12th grade and is extended an offer, you may start the registration packet immediately for the 2024-25 school year. If your student is entering pre-kindergarten (Pre-K) and is extended an offer, please accept the offer before the offer expiration date. Registration for Pre-K students will then begin on April 1. 


Waitlist: Students who are not selected to attend KIPP Texas through the lottery will be placed on a waitlist in a randomly determined order.  Don’t worry though! If a spot becomes available, students will be selected from the waitlist and parents will be notified and informed of the next steps.  Any application received after March 4 will be placed on the waitlist in the order it was received. KIPP Texas will continue to extend admissions offers through the start of the 2024-25 school year. 


Do I need to apply again if my child already attends a KIPP Texas Public School?

No. Students who currently attend a KIPP Texas school will be asked to re-enroll later this year.

I have a child who already attends KIPP, and I want their sibling to attend. When do sibling applications open?

We would love to welcome your other children as Little KIPPsters! Just click “Yes” for the “I have another child attending this charter school” option when you apply using SchoolMint. Please provide the sibling’s name who is currently attending KIPP Texas. For questions about the application process and school and grade level offerings, please visit or contact your campus directly!
